Department of Environmental Medicine Research

Our investigators lead breakthrough research projects that advance the field.

The core mission of NYU Langone’s Department of Environmental Medicine is to conduct cutting-edge research in environmental health sciences and use our findings to improve the health of our communities. We accomplish this by obtaining funded grants from the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and other government and non-government funding agencies.

Our primary areas of research include chemical carcinogenesis, epigenetics, health effects of particulate air pollution, epidemiology of cancer susceptibility and causation, and environmental etiology of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Our research program comprises three divisions:

Our research faculty are renowned for advancing the field of environmental medicine by conducting innovative studies that yield actionable results.

Division of Human Exposure and Health Effects
